Publisher Square Enix has released some screenshots from the upcoming Dragon Quest VII remake on 3DS. You can see them in the gallery above.

Originally released for PSOne in 2000, Square Enix confirmed last month that a Dragon Quest VII remake for 3DS would release in Japan on 7 February, 2013. Development duties are being handled by ArtePiazza, who most recently worked on DS remakes of Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride and Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation.

There’s no word yet on a release of Dragon Quest VII outside Japan, but given the Dragon Quest remakes on DS made it to US and Europe, there’s every reason to believe Dragon Quest VII will continue the tradition.

    Some really good games on or coming to the 3DS lately. Looking forward to this assuming it makes it over to the west :D

    Damn. This alone may have just warranted a 3DS buy from me. Sunk WAYYYY too many hours into DQVII on the PSone. Damn monster park!

    This will be a reason to get a 3DS at some point. But, what I really want to see is Dragon Quest VIII. That would make me go buy one right now.

    Exactly! I never did finish that damned game and it would be a great reason to pick one up.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS! Finally the cinematic handheld Dragon Quest experience I have yearned for since IV DS! I can't wait to see how the graphics look in motion! I have a special place in my heart for well-animated 3D RPGs. They just immerse you inside the rich environment and story because of the intense detail and movement of a polygonal model versus that of a sprite! I AM SO STOKED.

    PLEASE bring this game to the US. I got DQ9 fell in love, then ended up getting 4, 5, and 6 and loved them too. I'd buy this right away.
